Let's dance while the music plays

I think the balance of this film, for its oeuvre, was very close to perfect. It has some flaws but so do our lives. A film with heart and humour, great performances from the cast (this must have been a hoot to be a part of) and solid unshowy writing.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- November 2018 (29 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 43min. First Viewing It doesn't reinvent the ensemble-family holiday picture, but Home for the Holidays wisely understands that most wounds aren't healed overnight, and sometimes chosen families are just as, or more, important than the ones we're born into. Though it's friction is, frequently, inorganically introduced, the strength of the actors sell the family tension expertly (especially Hunter and Downey), resulting in some surprising depths of truthfulness for the film.

"33 as Tommy Larson OMG I fell in love with his character in this movie! From his entrance of sneaking into his mothers house the night before Thanksgiving and ripping the covers off his sister and taking Polaroids of her. He's so absolutely crazy in this movie. It reminded me of his character Leo from Johnny be Good. Jodie Foster who directed and did commentary for the dvd said most of what his character said and did was improvised. He improvised on what he said when he danced with his m"
